Ocean freight is the foremost and preferred method for moving goods internationally, primarily because it is the most cost effective and provides for a range of cost options based on varying transit times which in turn allows businesses to manage their cargo and stock replenishment effectively.
At KTL Australiawe have developed key relationships with all of the leading ocean liners, to provide an extensive range of import and export ocean freight services that cater to our clients every need.
FCL (Full Container Load) is a safe and reliable method of shipping cargo. Cargo can be moved into 20 or 40 foot containers that come with a range of variances; open top, flat rack, refrigerated (reefer) or ISO-Tank.
Contrasted to LCL - where the container is shared with other shippers, FCL utilizes the full container for one shipper from the factory door to the receivers door.
Dependent on the specifications of the cargo, it can often be more cost effective to load an FCL container even though if the cargo does not fill the container. This can be attributed to LCL being measured by the total cubic meters loaded, whereby FCL is measured by one figure for the entire container.

FCX (Full Container Consolidation) also referred to as Buyers Consolidation is when you (as the buyer) have several suppliers in the same / closely neighboring countries to consolidate in the same container.
This can be correlated to LCL Seafreight, though there is only one receiver instead of multiple.
FCX / Buyers Consolidations can prove cost effective for receivers to incur a flat fee for the container, though receive goods from multiple suppliers.
KTL Australia & partner offices can offer consolidation services for your groupage consignments.
